LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) – Lafayette School Corporation officials are considering all options for making up missed school days. That includes the possibility of school on Saturdays.

Superintendent Les Huddle informed the LSC board Monday evening that administrators were looking at the alternatives to putting all three make-up days at the end of the school year.

As News 18 has already reported, one option is Saturday school. The other is keeping students for an extra hour for six days.

Huddle said the alternative options have problems including for transportation and childcare.

But making up all three days at the end of the year means one day of school after Memorial Day weekend, the weekend currently slated for high school graduation.

“We can have graduation and still have an attendance day. I’m not sure if that’s what we want to do, not only for seniors, but for the rest of the corporation. So, we’re looking at all alternatives since the state board has come out with some options,” said Huddle.

Huddle has not set a timetable for making a decision.
